TORONTO (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke and Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons were both ejected for arguing separate plays in the eighth inning of Toronto’s 7-4 victory Wednesday.

Roenicke was ejected for the first time this season after arguing that Toronto’s Steve Tolleson had swung at a two-strike pitch that hit him in the right foot.

First base umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Roenicke, who came out on the field to continue arguing. Bench coach Jerry Narron took over for him.

One batter later, Tolleson was ruled safe as he advanced to second on a wild pitch. Narron came out to argue and the call was overturned following review.

That brought Gibbons out for an argument with plate umpire and crew chief Greg Gibson, leading to the second ejection of Gibbons this season.
